Looking at the crime map above you would not know it, but since Thanksgiving, residential burglary has actually decreased slightly in Arcadia. But, as you can see, from East Pasadena through Arcadia, there are still a number of "Res Burgs" being reported, particularly north of the freeway.
The majority of Arcadia burglaries have been committed during daytime hours. Several of the homes burglarized were targeted while the residents were gone for a few days at a time. While the Department places additional officers, both in plain cars and marked units in problem areas, we are not always in the right place at the right time. Please remember to be vigilant in both your observation of your neighborhood and with your own home safety and security.
